Black Belt Training Module

The On Site Black Belt Modules

This program allows companies of all sizes to have access to the Six Sigma tools. Black Belt training is designed to give candidates a learning experience through four "learn/apply" cycles using real business issues and problems during the training program. Black Belt positions are typically a full time commitment for at least a two year period.

The program consists of four training modules over a sixteen week period. Each module is separated by a period of three weeks of application on their specific project. The four modules are comprised of Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control. The initial step to the program is the Define Project step which is covered in the Executive and Champion training program , as well as in the Measure module.

Each module starts with a presentation by the Black Belt candidate of what has occurred to that point in the project. A list of deliverables is provided to each candidate and Champion. At the end of the sixteen week training program the Black Belt is required to present a report and demonstrate that they have successfully completed a project using the Six Sigma program. This portion of Six Sigma training is often referred to as the M.A.I.C. with the define phase being introduced in he Champion training module.
